Project Lifesaver:

What is Project Lifesaver?

PTFD is proud to offer Project Lifesaver to our residents in Pike Township. Project Lifesaver is a comprehensive program utilizing specialized equipment and training to quickly locate and rescue “at risk” individuals with cognitive disorders who have wandered from a safe place, including those with Alzheimer’s disease, Autism, and Down syndrome.

Project Lifesaver relies on proven radio technology and a specially trained search and rescue team. Clients that are enrolled in the Project Lifesaver program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. When caregivers notify the local Project Lifesaver agency that the person is missing, a search and rescue team responds to the wanderer’s last known location and starts searching with the mobile locator tracking system.

To find out more about this important service, please contact our Community Risk Reduction Specialist at 317-347-5860 ext 2109 or visit for more information.
